It seems that everytime we turn around we are handing another Fight On State Player of the Game honor to Tony Hunt. The senior running back picked up his unprecedented sixth honor from Nittany Nation fans this season for his performance in the Temple shutout.

With 16 rushes for 167 yards and three touchdowns on the ground and two catches for 25 yards and another touchdown through the air, Tony Hunt picked up his sixth FOS Player of the Game honor for the 2006 season.

Hunt now has over half of the single game honors handed out this season. In fact no other player has won the honor more than once this season. On the year Hunt has 217 carries for 1098 yards (5.1 YPC) and 11 touchdowns on the ground. He also has 24 receptions for 233 yards (9.7 YPC) and three touchdowns through the air.

Here is how the voting ended up:

Dan Connor: 0.3%
Tony Hunt: 86.8%
Anthony Morelli: 1.3%
Paul Posluszny: 8.4%
Derrick Williams: 3.2%

Here are how the voting results have shaken out through the first eleven games this season:

Akron: Dan Connor (13 tackles and two sacks)
Notre Dame: Jordan Norwood (six catches for 92 yards)
